Solid recipe, made a few changes. Per other reviews: doubled the fruit (I used 4 c. rhubarb, 2 c. strawberries); added heaping 1/4 tsp. allspice and 1 tbsp. salt to topping. I actually used the topping recipe from Apple Crisp II, so mine was 1:1:1:1/2 oats:flour:dark brown sugar, and I used 1.5 c. each (and 3/4 c. butter). I think in future I'll only use 1 c. each (and 1/2 c. butter). ***UPDATE: I tried the original topping recipe and it came out really powdery with only 1/2 c. butter. If you want the thicker "crunch" topping that the recipe calls for, you really need the full cup of butter to make it work. I also used 5 c. rhubarb, 1 c. strawberry, 1/2 c. sugar and it was nice and tart.
